AcDisplay has moved! Old version will not be updated anymore:

#AcDisplay FAQ: If you have any suggestions about FAQ / new common questions write them in comments.

Q: How can I join beta testing to take a look at future features?
A: At this moment there's no beta testing yet. 

Q: How can I uninstall this app?
A: Go to Settings > Security > Device Administrators and uncheck AcDisplay. You can now uninstall AcDisplay normally.

Q: What is active mode?
A: Active mode uses the device's sensors to wake your device up when you need it. This works great if you want to pull your device from your pocket and get a quick glimpse at the notifications you've received. Active mode doesn't keep the CPU running so you shouldn't see a big difference in battery consumption.

Q: How can I hide the annoying «Welcome to Immersive mode» popup?
A: Unfortunately, Android is the one showing that popup... If you know a workaround for that, please let us know - patches are also welcome! Xposed users can use “Don’t Panic!” module as a workaround.

Q: What a nice app! How can I donate?
A: Oh, thank you! You can use PayPal or Bitcoins (1GYj49ZnMByKj2f6p7r4f92GQi5pR6BSMz) to donate. 😃

Q: Why was the interface changed?
A: In order to avoid legal trouble with a certain company, a redesign was necessary to make the two products distinct. You'll hopefully like the new design better, as it's more streamlined and is aimed at giving you the best possible experience!

Q: How can I disable the permanent notifications when active mode or the lockscreen are enabled?
A: The notification is necessary to ensure AcDisplay isn't killed by the system. You can, however, hide it if it annoys you. To do so, long press AcDisplay's notification, tap «App info» and uncheck «Show notification». Once this is done, all notification from AcDisplay will be hidden. As a side effect, the test notification option will not function anymore.

Q: I want to see pattern / password lock in AcDisplay. Any chance to get it?
A: Not a big one. AcDisplay supports any of Android's lock screens... Reinventing the wheel would be silly when you can simply use what Android already has, especially considering that it has been tested and improved ever since the beginning of Android, and it's more secure than anything an app can offer.

Q: The blacklist isn't working! Or how do I use the blacklist?
A: To use the blacklist, you must enable the app and configure it as well. To enable it, simply press the switch button. To configure it for the app, press the app's name and the configuration screen will open.

Q: What's the different between «Hide» and «Silent» in the blacklist?
A: «Hide» completely ignores the notification. «Silent» won't wake your device, but the notification will still be displayed if AcDisplay is shown somehow (lockscreen or another notifications).

Q: I can see a typo / mistake in the translation!
A: You can easily help out with that. Join the app's page on crowdin and suggest a better translation. Thanks!

Q: When will AcDisplay be available for older devices/versions of Android?
A: While it is understandable that you want the AcDisplay awsomeness on your own device, the truth is that it’s really difficult. Most of the features depend on programming APIs that were just released Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Running KK 4.4.4 on a 2013 Moto X. I've had to disable Active Display because that's what shows as my lockscreen.  When I swipe that, THEN I see AcDisplay's lockscreen--so I'm unlocking my phone twice.  Any way to keep the hands-free features of Active Display enabled while showing only the AcDisplay lockscreen?

Is it possible to have gmail count badge be unread count rather than inbox count? Or option to disable count badges completely?

Hello everyone. I have an issue with AcDisplay not showing the Active Mode option in the settings menu. I am using an LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition with Android 5.0 lollipop.

I tried installing it on my Moto X just for fun, and it showed the option on that device. Just wondering what's going on and if it can be fixed.

Your device has no proximity sensor, therefore Active mode can't function.

I've been searching the community but didn't find the answer I need.
Does active mode works with the 4 proximity sensors of the Moto X 2014?
Like the Motorola app does? I was thinking of flashing a custom rom and AcDisplay would be a replacement for the Motorola app.

Is the motion sensors the 4 infrared sensors? Or something with the accelerometer/gyroscope?

Even after opening up the notification, i still have to go through the swipe screen. This is really irritating. Isnt it supposed to directly go to the notification?.

About this community

AcDisplay is a new way of handling notifications in Android. It will let you know about new notifications by showing a minimal, beautiful screen, allowing you to open them directly from the lock screen. And if you want to see what\'s going on, you can simply take your phone out of your pocket to view all the latest notifications, in a similarly pleasing and minimalistic manner.
Somehow ACDisplay never shows up, i really never saw the screen. Test screen works though, i'm using Lollipop for OnePlus One. If any other information needed, please ask :)

Is there any way for acdisplay not letting a SMS popup display above it? Android does not treat it as a lockscreen because on my messaging app I have enabled to not show popup reply on lockscreen and it still shows. I have the lockscreen option selected on acdisplay

I have a doubt, I didn't have cell-phone for sometime, well When the notification it's selected the “picture" from icon (for the notification) was the background no? Or now it's not implement?
I'm sorry for my English

Just a small question:
How active mode is used, only if use acdisplay as lockscreen?

Why I ask:

In lolipop I'm using acdisplay not as lockscreen and active mode turned on

1 - if device is in table, notification arrive, acdisplay turn screen on, fade away, when I turn screen on again they go directly to lolipop lockscreen, perfect!

2 - if device is in pocket, they still turn screen on inside my pocket, when I pull they out I thought active mode would kicks in (turning screen on), but don't, noting happens, if I turn screen on, they go to lolipop lockscreen.

I can understand that nothing happens because acdisplay isn't anymore active, since notification arrived, acdisplay showed and fade away, that's why I don't know how to use active mode, I don't want to use acdisplay as lockscreen but I would like to use active mode.

+Artem Chepurnoy just trying to figure out how to use AcDisplay properly along side lollipop, without having duplicate notifications (disable lollipop notifications so the only acdisplay notifications are shown).

is it possible to skip the lockscreen with AcDisplay with smart lock on?
Carlos Flores's profile photoZach Smith's profile photo
Use Tasker to setup "secure" locations based on your home/work wifi.  When you're at a "secure" location, Tasker can disable your lockscreen and only have AC Display.  When you leave your "secure" location, your lockscreen will be reenabled behind AC Display.
